That's actually kind of cool in a Sharknado sort of way.

I got bit by a piranha once. In a fish tank. It left a perfect circle on the tip of my finger and I could not get it to stop bleeding for a long time afterward.

Someone's comment at DM: "Let's cool off in the Parana River and then go surfing in Tiger Shark Bay!"

So.... how does this relate to Pope Francis's economic theories?

I used to visit a lake cabin Up Nort where the sunfish would nip at our nipples. Never went skinny dipping there.

I blame the Koch Brothers. Isn't Michelle Obama just gorgeous?

This is actually a lot less bad than what we see in the movies, where the piranha strip the flesh from the body in a few seconds. It's interesting that the locals were ready to keep on swimming. Wasn't there a scene in Jaws . . . .

I'm tired of you ichthyophobic people picking on these fish, who were just minding their own business when these religious zealots crossed their stream.

Are you gonna tell me those swimmers didn't know they were made of meat?

Centralization invites a mass piranha attack. Statistically, there would have been less victims if the swimmers were organically distributed. Oh, well. People like to cling to their failed distribution models.

What is the creel limit for humans?
Admittedly, they are a tough catch.

Good thing the Piranhas were not using barbed hooks or the story could have ended differently. Or maybe they have a mandatory "catch and release" program in Argentina.

You just can't stop hungry fish.

The last time, I promise.

The story has a side article on Spitzer and his new girlfriend meeting her parents. I wonder what it takes to get over the bar to being Spitzer's interest?

You don't tug on Superman's cape, you don't spit into the wind, you don't swim in a river with piranha and you don't mess around with Jim.

I tug on Superman's cape all the time.
